Quotes for the $2 Million Juvenile Fillies
Richard Mandella (trainer, Beholder, 1st) – “She ran her heart out. It was a big effort and being at her home track sure helps. I guess Santa Anita still has the magic.”
(Mandella won four Breeders’ Cup races at Santa Anita in 2003)
Garrett Gomez (jockey, Beholder, 1st) – “We figured to be on the lead unless someone did something, and she ran just to her style. She’s super fast, and she relaxed as much as I wanted her to. I tried to sneak away a little on the turn for home, and at first she did it, but then she acted like she hit a wall and I got a little nervous. But when the other filly (Executiveprivilege) came to her, she kicked on and gave me another gear. I guess she was just playing possum with me.”
